What is funkrust?
Funkrust Brass Band is a twenty-piece brass band founded and led by songwriter, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Phil Andrews (Rude Mechanical Orchestra, Gay Panic, Apocalypse Five & Dime). Funkrust was born in a basement in Ridgewood, Queens in November of 2014. Their sound stems from a unique blend of punk, disco, EDM, metal, funk, Balkan brass and New Orleans second line. Featuring snazzy uniforms, choreography, megaphone vocals and all original compositions, they are a sight not to be missed.
Based in Brooklyn, Funkrust has performed across New York City -- in small clubs and big public venues, in parades and at festivals -- to universal acclaim. Funkrust shows have been called "wonderful," "EPIC!" "awesome," and "off the chain, transcendent" by commenters on Facebook.
